welcome to lara views estate
Residents of Lara Views Estate enjoy the best of everything that Lara has to offer.
Completed in September 2018, Lara Views Estate is situated at the corner of Forest Road North and Canterbury Road, Lara and features 139 lots.
The estate is conveniently located just a few minutes by car from the Lara Village Shopping Centre, five minutes from the Lara Train Station, 10 minutes from the You Yangs and close to schools and sporting facilities.
One of the most attractive features of Lara Views Estate is the generous provision of public open space. This totals 6.8 hectares - approximately 38 per cent of the land area.
Other key features of Lara Views Estate include 800 linear metres of walking track around a reserve, a pedestrian bridge, 460 trees, 38,000 wetland plants, a 47,000m2 grass reserve for kick-about space and a playground.
Lara Views Estate’s landscaping works were carried out by Auscapes, who were responsible for the landscaping of Bisinella’s award-winning Grand Lakes Estate.
In 2015, the Lara estate won the UDIA award (Urban Development Institute of Australia) for the best residential estate in Victoria, a first for anywhere in the Geelong region, let alone Lara.
Grand Lakes Estate was completed in 2015 and built around 18ha of open space, including three ornamental lakes and expansive areas of densely-planted wetlands and landscaped parkland.
Grand Lakes Estate was also regarded as a showcase for environmental excellence in Australia by winning the state and then the national UDIA Award for Environmental Excellence in 2016.
